The subject says it all: How much horsepower do you get out of your 9-3 and how?

Hi Phillip,

Welcome to Saabcentral. Interesting question that you've asked there and I think Abbott900 may want answer it (I've been in his car and I was impressed).

Eric...that's not your car... :nono;

Yea, but it is a nice goal to shoot for. :D

My GM900 is putting out 242 hp and 262 ft-lbs torque. Realistically speaking 300-350 hp can be had from a 9-3 for a few thousand $ (or ).

And so I will, my GM900 convertible has had a 250bhp from Abbott Racing. But I will find out for definate at the Power Engineering day next month, so providing the engine doesn't go bang I will let you know exactly what it is running... If it's more I'll be pleased, if it's less I'll lie. :lol:

But in answer to your question, how, it's had a gas flowed head, chipped and the intercooler has been replaced with a performance item.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Is anyone with the 2.3 litre HOT engine around? I have a 9-3 Viggen convertible waiting to be tuned... and I heard of 9000 Aeros with more than 300 hp.

Yours,

Philip

Well, i know i'm not as high as all of you but, my friend has a g-tech and it dynoed me at 182hp at the wheels, does that sound right?
I have a 99 9-3s
intake and bov so far

That almost sounds a little high. Output at the crankshaft should be 185hp. The intake may add 5hp, the BOV shouldn't add anything, but the drivetrain should take away a lot of horsepower. Several of us in the Saab Club of Seattle took our cars to a dyno last summer. I think my 900 SE turbo was reading around 180 with a Viggen exhaust and a Viggen intercooler, and a guy with a 900 SE turbo that only had a Saab sport exhaust was down near 170.

You couldn't post the link directly to the car and pictures could you? My Swedish isn't what it used to be. :lol:

Hi guys !

Here http://www.chrizz.nu/saab/saab.html is some info and pics on Robert Uhrs ng900, in swedish though...(Scroll down, it's the "Saab 900 Nordic GT-Edition -94". It's a really crazy car, his been racing Yamaha R1:s successfully and so on :D I'm not sure if they have dynoed it yet but his goal was around 450bhp..And the car is light also, I remember reading that he had reduced the weight to 800kg :! :!

And here (http://www.nordictuning.biz/kalle) is another page with some videoclips of the car in action and some pics of the custom exhaust build at Ferrita.

I'll post some more info if I can find some...He was about to dyno it soon :cheesy:

Cheers ![/url]

The title and the first post are two different things.

This thread is also 'a few' years old. How in the world do these things get bumped? It's funny to see how things have progressed since then :D

This made me LOL a little inside. Sounds like the "mystical 9000"...not really the case anymore.
